GAAP net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $23.5 million ($11.22 per share) compared to GAAP net loss of $2.2 million ($1.15 per share) for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Contract Revenue was $6.1 million for the fiscal year 2012 compared to $20.3 million for 2011.  The decrease in contract revenues was due to the completion of all substantive performance obligations related to research support activities under our agreement with Sanofi Pasteur (Sanofi), the vaccines division of Sanofi Group.

Research and Development (R&D) expenses were $24.5 million for the fiscal year 2012 compared to $18.5M in 2011. R&D expense increased during 2012 due to increased clinical trial activity compared with the prior period.  General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $5.1 million for the fiscal year 2012 compared to $4.0M in 2011. G&A expense increased in 2012 due to higher legal, accounting and consulting costs.  We expect operating expenses to continue to increase during 2013 as we further develop our clinical programs and incur expenses associated with being a public company.

As of December 31, 2012, KaloBios had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaling $20.3 million, compared to $17.8 million at December 31, 2011. On a pro-forma basis at December 31, 2012, including the net proceeds of our initial public offering completed in the first quarter of 2013, the cash, cash equivalent and marketable securities was approximately $83.8M

"KaloBios ended 2012 with a strong, differentiated clinical pipeline marked by three first-in-class, patient-targeted therapies for severe asthma, Pseudomonas infections associated with cystic fibrosis and pneumonia, and hematologic malignancies," said David Pritchard, KaloBios' President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to move forward aggressively to complete enrollment in the ongoing Phase 2 KB003 asthma study, our Phase 2 KB001-A cystic fibrosis (CF) study and our Phase 1 KB004 hematologic malignancy study."

About KaloBios

KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is developing a portfolio of proprietary, patient-targeted, first-in-class monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) designed to significantly improve the lives of seriously ill patients with difficult-to-treat diseases.

Currently, KaloBios has three drug development programs:

  • KB003, an anti-GM-CSF mAb with potential to treat inflammatory diseases, is being developed for the treatment of severe asthma and is currently enrolling patients in a 150 patient Phase 2 study in the United States, Europe and Australia.
  • KB001-A, an anti-PcrV mAb fragment, is partnered exclusively with Sanofi and is being developed for the prevention and treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) infection. KaloBios has retained rights for the cystic fibrosis (CF) indication and has initiated a 180 patient Phase 2 study in CF subjects with chronic Pa infection in the United States. Sanofi is pursuing a ventilator associated pneumonia prevention indication in the intensive care setting.
  • KB004, an anti-EphA3 mAb, has potential in treating hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. KaloBios is currently testing this drug in a Phase 1 study in subjects with hematologic malignancies.

All of the company's antibodies were generated using its proprietary Humaneered® technology, a method that converts nonhuman antibodies (typically mouse) into recombinant antibodies that have a high binding affinity to their target and are designed for chronic therapeutic use. The company believes that antibodies produced using its Humaneered® technology offer important clinical and economic advantages over antibodies generated by other methods in terms of high binding affinity, high manufacturing yields, and minimal to no immunogenicity (inappropriate immune response) upon repeat administration in humans.
